Happy Summer!

Our focus for June is on Science Fiction and Sports - both are 50% off our regular price for the month. Great categories for Father’s Day too; come find something for Dad, or for yourself. We also offer gift cards in any amount, so Dad can select his own books.


We are in need of book donations, so if you’ve been thinking of weeding your bookshelves, we’d love to be the recipient of your efforts. We’d really love Children’s books, as they sell quickly. Please review our Donation Guidelines before packing your goods, and bring donations Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday, 10am-3pm, to the back parking lot. If we’re closed, PLEASE DO NOT leave items by the door. Thank you.  


Come visit us soon! Our store shopping hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 10am-3pm.
